The ESRF beamline ID26 is dedicated to X-ray absorption and emission spectroscopy. We develop advanced X-ray spectroscopy techniques and study the electronic structure and local coordination in systems that are relevant in the applied sciences (materials science, coordination (bio)chemistry, (bio)catalysis, mineralogy and earth sciences). The beamline hosts unique instrumentation for advanced X-ray spectroscopy and thus provides state-of-the-art research possibilities. For further information about the instrument, please consult
http://www.esrf.fr/id26. We collaborate with theory groups that develop codes for electronic structure calculations for X-ray spectroscopies. You will be encouraged and supported to develop your own research, which should exploit the exceptional beamline capabilities. Your research will concern the element-specific study of electronic structure. The exact topic of your research will be planned together with your supervisor taking into account your interests and previous experience. You will initiate and participate in collaborative research programmes with universities and research centres.
Contract of 18 months, renewable for a further 6 or 18-month period.
